Morgan: Two Plays

Abi Morgan

PaperBack (01 Mar 2005)

Inside a beautiful state residence on the edge of a city, four women wait. They talk: films, Prada, chilli vodka, anything. Outside civil war looms ever nearer. With wit and delight in the unusual, Splendour encompasses both the cruel veneer of our lives and the beating heart within.

In Tender, in a city of fast talk and chance encounters, how much faith can we put in other people? Abi Morgan’s acerbic play takes a scalpel to modern love and friendship.

‘Gripping... What we are shown is four characters trapped in a room, waiting. But no sooner is this claustrophobic scenario established than it is twisted and shaken like a kaleidoscope.’ Guardian on Splendour

‘Intricate and multifaceted, like a Cubist painting put to words... with each turn of the prism, the image grows clearer. And the final picture is riveting.’ LA Times on Splendour
